Galaxy A13 and A23: New entry-level smartphones with awesome features

Samsung has officially made its two new entry-level smartphones, the Galaxy A13 and Galaxy A23. The devices are identical in appearance and technology in many areas and share a design. With prices starting at just under 190 euros, they both offer solid equipment.

The Samsung Galaxy A13 And Galaxy A23 are barely distinguishable from the outside. The two models are housed in plastic housing and each has a 6.6-inch LCD panel with a surprisingly high resolution of 2408×1080 pixels. It has a V-shaped cutout on the top for the front camera with an 8-megapixel sensor and a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 cover.

On the back is an identical camera system consisting of the main sensor with 50 megapixels and an aperture of F/1.8, an ultra-wide-angle camera with an aperture of F/2.2, and two depth and macro cameras with a resolution of two megapixels each. Under the hood, however, there are notable differences, especially in the platform used.

The Galaxy A13 4G has a Samsung Exynos 850 octa-core SoC that reaches up to 2.2 gigahertz, while a Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 does its job in the Galaxy A23 4G – there is no 5G version for now. Depending on the model, the two devices are each equipped with four or six gigabytes of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of internal flash memory, which can be easily expanded via a microSD card slot. In some regions, the A23 is also sold in a version with as much as eight gigabytes of RAM.

In addition, there is a 5000mAh battery each, which can be recharged relatively quickly with a 25-watt power supply, despite the fact that the two new smartphones target the lower end of the price range. The operating system that runs here is Android 12 in combination with the Samsung One UI 4.1. Samsung will probably only release the Galaxy A13 in Europe for the time being, for which we have retail prices of 189 euros for the version with 4/64 GB and 209 euros for the version with 6/128 GB. We don’t know yet when the new models will be available.
